After three matches in the EPL season, Eden Hazard, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Sergio Aguero look like they will play a big role in helping their respective clubs to win the title.
Starting with Ibrahimovic, the former Swedish international has announced his arrival in the England with a bang-four goals in as many matches for Manchester United. Ibrahimovic has been very successfully in the leagues he played in and boasts of more than ten league titles to his name.
You would be hard pressed to find a punter willing to bet against him repeating his success in England. All indications are that he may actually do it considering his bright start and history of scoring goals in the past. In total, Ibrahimovic has scored 396 goals in 681 league matches. At this rate, Ibrahimovic looks set to have another successful season in England and United could be the beneficiaries as they seek to push for the title.
Manchester City will no doubt miss Sergio Aguero for this weekend’s Manchester derby after the Argentine was handed a three match ban. With three goals so far in the league, it’s easy to see why and Manchester City will definitely miss his goals. Last season he netted 24 goals and won the golden boot the previous year. Aguero is also unmatched in the best goals per minute record in Premier League history. He has a knack of doing well in big matches for City and new man Pep Guardiola will find it difficult to replace him for Saturday’s derby.
Eden Hazard’s nomination for the Premier League player of the month award for August is the biggest that Hazard is back. He was way below par last season when Chelsea struggled but with a new manager, the sky is the limit for him. Hazard has also netted thrice and looks like like he is just warming up.
Whatever happens this season and whoever wins the title, one of these players will be influential in their teams title tilt.
